Iliacus Release


1 Rating

Please review the anatomy of the psoas, iliacus, and anterior pelvic area before doing this technique.

With the client's hip flexed, press your fingers in medial to the crest of the ilium, then pull laterally, catching the iliacus between your fingers and the crest of the ilium. Have your client push their foot down as you slide up the edge of the iliacus with your fingers. Go slowly and stay within your client's comfort range.

Cautions and Contraindications:

Do not press and hold pressure anywhere that you feel a pulse!

Short fingernails are needed for this technique.
